Pope Reinstates 9/11 Truth Bishop

... the Roman Catholic Church, revoked the excommunications of four schismatic bishops on Saturday, including one whose comments denying the Holocaust have provoked outrage.

The decision provided fresh fuel for critics who charge that Benedict’s four-year-old papacy has increasingly moved in line with traditionalists who are hostile to the sweeping reforms of the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s that sought to create a more modern and open church.

A theologian who has grappled with the church’s diminished status in a secular world, Benedict has sought to foster a more ardent, if smaller, church over one with looser faith.

But while the revocation may heal one internal rift, it may also open a broader wound, alienating the church’s more liberal adherents and jeoparding 50 years of Vatican efforts to ease tensions with Jewish groups.

Among the men reinstated Saturday was Richard Williamson, a British-born cleric who in an interview last week said he did not believe that six million Jews died in the Nazi gas chambers. He has also given interviews saying that the United States government staged the Sept. 11 attacks as a pretext to invade Afghanistan. ...

In a November interview broadcast on Swedish television last week and widely available on the Internet, the bishop said that he believed that “the historical evidence” was strongly against the conclusion that millions of Jews had been “deliberately gassed in gas chambers as a deliberate policy”...

I heard him give a brilliant lecture on 9/11 and the book 1984. It is on youtube in 4 parts.

Then I heard he didn't believe in the holohoax. He's awake.

I don't think I've even seen any comment in the mainstream media about Williamson being a "9-11 Truther," although there certainly has been notice of his disbelief in the gassed-Jews story, which I think is much more important anyway.  Bishop Williamson gives Holocaust revisionism a respectable face and presents it very well.

In what sense does Richardson subscribe to "9-11 Truth"?  To me the important 9-11 Truth is that some Israelis had advance knowledge, and that it benefited the State of Israel at a time when they were suffering from very bad publicity from the Durban Anti-Racism Conference, and helped them to get the ball rolling on eliminating their nemesis Saddam Hussein.  All that stuff about how the Twin Towers and Building 7 collapsed is to me just a distraction, because there really is not much mystery about it.

he is shooting at a straw-man target when he says that, because all the holo-pontiffs agree that about half the supposed 6m were shot by the einsatzgruppen, not gassed.

RowanBerkeley here is exhibiting the traditional Jewish response whenever some aspect of the Holocaust Story is disproven: change the story and pretend that this was the story all along.

In 1945, Dachau, Buchenwald, and Bergen-Belsen were claimed to be sites of gassings.  Today that is not claimed; all gassings were supposed to be in Poland.  After Fred Leuchter did his examination of the Auschwitz Kremas some publicity was given to the claim that Krema I was not authentic but a "reconstruction" (thus rendering moot  the results of chemical tests that found no cyanide) 

Since the gas-chamber story has taken such a beating there has been a tendency to put more emphasis on the killing by the Einsatzgruppen.  RowanBerkeley wants to attribute three million deaths to the Einsatzgruppen.  That is the highest figure that I have ever encountered. The higher estimates thus far have been around 1.5 million (although that is probably a ten-fold exaggeration).  This means that something like 4.5 million Jews were gassed according to the traditional Holocaust Story.  The gas-chamber story is and has always been the major element of the Holohoax.  Don't think you are going to weasel out of the truth, RowanBerkeley.

A classic!
